Four Israelis and 24 Palestinians were killed in a resurgence of deadly violence the two areas haven’t seen since 2014. Over 600 rockets were fired toward Israel from the Gaza Strip before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered “massive attacks” against militant groups and secured resources to prepare for days of fighting. The violence comes ahead of a busy time in the region, with the televised singing contest Eurovision expected to draw hundreds of thousands of tourists to Tel Aviv and the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, which begins Monday.  Visit INSIDER’s homepage for more stories.

Deadly violence between Israel and Gaza escalated Sunday in the most extreme strikes since the last full-blown war between the areas in 2014.

The four Israelis were the first civilians to die since a clash in the summer of 2014 when over 600 rockets were fired toward Israel from the Gaza Strip.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
